Subject: Idiot's guide to installing Lotus Notes 8.0.1 on Ubuntu 8.0.4
Feedback Type: Suggestion
Product Area: Notes 8 Client
Technical Area: Install
Platform: Linux
Release: 8.0.1
Reproducible: Always

In case you haven't done it already, if you have a fresh install of Ubuntu you will need to enable the root account first. Go into System / Administration / Users and groups. Right click on root, click unlock, then click properties and give the root account a password.

Use these instructions to install-

You may get a security warning (or not, depending on how quickly the hardy distro includes updated eclipse files) In your home directory (Places/Home folder) open the .mozilla folder (which is hidden, you may need to unhide it- View/Show hidden files) and create a folder called eclipse.

That should be it. Hope this helps someone.
